Benzene vapor pressure. Eon Pommier et al 1971. Male volunteers were exposed to ethylbenzene vapor in an exposure chamber at 435 mgcu m for 4 hours. The results indicate that whereas only the R-enantiomer of mardelic acid was excreted after ethylbenzene exposure the mandelic acid from styrene was essentially racemic.

The Antoine equation is a class of semi-empirical correlations relating the vapor pressure and temperature for pure components. Vapor Pressure of Benzene. Its vapor is heavier than air and may sink into low-lying areas.
The vapor pressure at 61 C of a solution prepared by dissolving 65 g of camphor C10H160 1522 gmol nonvolatile nonionizing solute in 225 g of benzene is atm. Benzene is a clear colorless highly flammable and volatile liquid aromatic hydrocarbon with a gasoline-like odor. If benzene must be used in an experiment it should be handled at all stages in a fume cupboard.

The determinant may be present in biological specimens collected from subjects who have not been occupationally exposed at a concentration which could affect interpretation of the result. The Antoine equation is derived from the ClausiusClapeyron relation. Question 3 1 pts The vapor pressure of pure benzene C6H6 781 gmol is 053 atm at 61 C.
When 1000 g of an unknown non-volatile substance is dissolved in 1000 g of benzene the vapor pressure of the solution at 250 C is 01199 atm. All data Ambrose 1987 Ambrose D Vapor Pressures of Some Aromatic Hydrocarbons J. Benzene is found in crude oils and as a by-product of oil-refining processes.

Full-facepiece respirator gas mask with a chin-style front- or back-mounted organic vapor canister Any appropriate escape-type self-contained breathing. In industry benzene is used as a solvent as a chemical intermediate and is used in the synthesis of numerous chemicals.
Benzene is a carcinogen cancer-causing agent. Benzene dissolves only slightly in water and will float on top of water. Any self-contained breathing apparatus that has a full facepiece and is operated in a pressure-demand or other positive-pressure mode.
Tt-muconic acid in urine. The vapor pressure of benzene is 951 torr and of toluene is 284 torr at this temperature. Report your answer with two significant figures.

Calculate the mole fraction of solute in the solution assuming no dissociation by the solute. The vapor pressure for benzene is 952 mm Hg at 25 C and it has a log octanolwater partition coefficient log Kow of 213. Temperature K A B C Reference Comment.
Coefficents calculated by NIST from authors data. Vapor or saturation pressure depends on temperature. Benzene causes central nervous system damage acutely and bone marrow damage chronically and is carcinogenic.
It has a sweet odor and is highly flammable. The vapor pressure of a liquid is defined as the pressure exerted by the molecules that escapes from the liquid to form a separate vapor phase above the liquid surface. Vapor pressure of pure benzene at 60 C is 391 torr.
Biological Exposure Index BEI. Benzene should NOT be used at all unless no safer alternatives are available.
